Product inspection for canned, frozen and convenience foods

The trend towards convenience products – and increasingly discerning consumers, who expect food without quality issues– is growing. Our inspection systems reliably detect and eliminate contaminants, ensuring safe products and satisfied customers.

For decades, Sesotec has specialized in systems for industrial contaminant detection. We provide a technologically perfected range of metal detectors and X-ray scanners, which inspect already packed goods. Our machines and systems of course comply with the special hygiene requirements of the food industry and meet the prescribed standards for audits.

Why is inspecting canned, frozen and convenience foods important?

Whether it is HACCP, IFS, BRC or another standard, food producers require certification and undergo audits to meet the retail industry’s quality and safety requirements. Consumers expect high-quality products. Goods containing contaminants that leave the factory can trigger very costly recalls that can tarnish a company’s reputation.

 

What kinds of contaminants can appear in canned, frozen and convenience foods?

Raw materials can be one source of organic and inorganic contaminants. Machine wear and careless staff are other potential sources. Typical contaminants include the following:

  • Stones
  • Metal parts, metal abrasion
  • Glass fragments
  • Plastics
  • Wood



What products can be inspected?

Our contaminant detection and sorting systems are used for a wide range of applications. Here are some examples

  • Instant meals
  • Microwave meals
  • Frozen fish fillets
  • Frozen pizzas
  • Peas
  • Green beans
  • Broccoli
  • Zucchini
  • Peppers
  • Carrots
  • Corn
  • Cauliflower
  • Mushrooms
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Mixed vegetables
  • Pickles
  • Apple pieces
  • Olives

 

Where and how do manufacturers of Canned, frozen and convenience food use our machines?

Our metal detectors and X-ray scanners are suitable for a wide range of production steps and process stages, from receiving to the final inspection of already packaged products. The choice and ideal placement of a particular type of machine depend on the specific circumstances. We would be happy to advise you and help you find the best solution for your needs!
